Summaries for SLC2A1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC2A1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a major glucose transporter in the mammalian blood-brain barrier. The encoded protein is found primarily in the cell membrane and on the cell surface, where it can also function as a receptor for human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV) I and II. Mutations in this gene have been found in a family with paroxysmal exertion-induced dyskinesia. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2013]

GeneCards Summary for SLC2A1 Gene

SLC2A1 (Solute Carrier Family 2 Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC2A1 include Dystonia 9 and Glut1 Deficiency Syndrome 2, Childhood Onset. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glucagon signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC2A4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC2A1 Gene

  • Facilitative glucose transporter. This isoform may be responsible for constitutive or basal glucose uptake. Has a very broad substrate specificity; can transport a wide range of aldoses including both pentoses and hexoses.

Tocris Summary for SLC2A1 Gene

  • Glucose transporters enable the movement of glucose, a hydrophilic molecule, across the cell membrane. Glucose is an essential source of energy for mammalian cells, and is also used as a substrate in protein and lipid synthesis.

  • Dystonia 9 (DYT9) [MIM:601042]: An autosomal dominant neurologic disorder characterized by childhood onset of paroxysmal choreoathetosis and progressive spastic paraplegia. Most patients show some degree of cognitive impairment. Other variable features may include seizures, migraine headaches, and ataxia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21832227}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Epilepsy, idiopathic generalized 12 (EIG12) [MIM:614847]: A disorder characterized by recurring generalized seizures in the absence of detectable brain lesions and/or metabolic abnormalities. Generalized seizures arise diffusely and simultaneously from both hemispheres of the brain. Seizure types include juvenile myoclonic seizures, absence seizures, and generalized tonic-clonic seizures. In some EIG12 patients seizures may remit with age. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19798636, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22282645, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23280796}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • GLUT1 deficiency syndrome 1 (GLUT1DS1) [MIM:606777]: A neurologic disorder showing wide phenotypic variability. The most severe classic phenotype comprises infantile-onset epileptic encephalopathy associated with delayed development, acquired microcephaly, motor incoordination, and spasticity. Onset of seizures, usually characterized by apneic episodes, staring spells, and episodic eye movements, occurs within the first 4 months of life. Other paroxysmal findings include intermittent ataxia, confusion, lethargy, sleep disturbance, and headache. Varying degrees of cognitive impairment can occur, ranging from learning disabilities to severe mental retardation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10227690, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10980529, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11136715, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11603379, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12325075, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15622525, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19901175, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20129935, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20221955, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20574033, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24847886}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • GLUT1 deficiency syndrome 2 (GLUT1DS2) [MIM:612126]: A clinically variable disorder characterized primarily by onset in childhood of paroxysmal exercise-induced dyskinesia. The dyskinesia involves transient abnormal involuntary movements, such as dystonia and choreoathetosis, induced by exercise or exertion, and affecting the exercised limbs. Some patients may also have epilepsy, most commonly childhood absence epilepsy. Mild mental retardation may also occur. In some patients involuntary exertion-induced dystonic, choreoathetotic, and ballistic movements may be associated with macrocytic hemolytic anemia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14605501, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18451999, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19630075, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19798636, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20129935, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20574033, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20621801, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20830593, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21204808}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Stomatin-deficient cryohydrocytosis with neurologic defects (SDCHCN) [MIM:608885]: A rare form of stomatocytosis characterized by episodic hemolytic anemia, cold-induced red cells cation leak, erratic hyperkalemia, neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, hepatosplenomegaly, cataracts, seizures, mental retardation, and movement disorder. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:21791420, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22492876}.
